Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.199 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,288 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 240,035 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, bizarre-looking creatures called 'shadowdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 119,389th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -39 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
